"The reason we wanted big receivers is based on the offense. The ability to block and be a factor on the inside is a huge factor.

"It basically would end the communication."
"The No. 1 (criterion) in my mind for drafting a player is tape. How did he play as a college player? The second-most-valuable piece is going to be the character side, football and personal. That gives you a better way to predict how he'll be as a pro. Those two things will tell you."

"[Competition Committee co-chair and Tennessee coach] Jeff Fisher complained, and he's a defensive guy. It started before last year, actually. In our last three [annual] reports to the teams, we said we had to do something about the illegal contact. There was just getting to be too much of it. And as we went through last season, I don't want to use the term 'death threat,' but there was going to be a clear emphasis made on clarifying the rule after the season. By the end of last year, it was well on our radar screen."

Author: McKay Quotes Category: Competition Quotes
"I will say one thing: it probably took us more time to discuss it (at preliminary competition committee meetings) and all the different aspects of it this year than any year I can remember in the past. But it is one that has drawn a lot of media attention, and I think the league and the teams have talked a lot about it. We certainly talked a lot about it, and then when we get to Orlando, we'll obviously tell you what our position was. But for now, I'll just say that it is one that's definitely sparked interest."

"They did what they did and they knew there would be consequences. But they won championships doing it. They made the trade-off."

"Almost from the day I got here, I heard complaints about the field in the indoor facility. It was too hard. Guys would feel like they took a pounding on their legs. The material that was in there before was produced by a company that no longer exists, so it wasn't like we could do anything to make it better."
"The salary-cap system makes you make choices, and some of them are not very popular choices. But because the money is so big, the choices have big consequences if they don't work out. It has a trickle-down effect on the rest of your football team."
"When you look at some of these celebrations, you think they're kind of funny. But when you look at a bunch of them, you are a little concerned by it. We're trying to make sure that sportsmanship remains central to the game."

"The quarterback sits in a defenseless position when his feet are on the ground and he's throwing the football. We have to find ways to try to protect him.
